How a Reservation Works

Advanced reservation requests are required and only available for center members and City of Rockville residents (check your residency status online). 

Reservations:
• Available online 24/7
• Offers 1-hour of amenity use
• May be made 96 hours (or 4 days) in advance on a rolling basis
• Require 1-hour of notice before use
• Limited to 1 fitness and 1 gymnasium appointment per day and per customer

What does “rolling basis” mean? Rolling basis means that reservations will open continuously 96 hours (or 4 days) in advance. For example, Sunday at 10am, reservations as far out as Thursday at 10am will show in the system. Once all appointments within the 96-hour window are booked, the system will show that no time slot are available. If a reservation is cancelled, that time slot will show in the system for booking with a required 1-hour notice before use. 

Limit to Number of Reservations Per Day. If a customer reserves more than 1 fitness and 1 gymnasium appointment per day, staff may cancel the duplicate reservations to open the space up to other customers.

Reservations for Badminton and Pickleball Courts. Reservations for badminton and pickleball courts are for 4 players. You must name each person participating during the reservation booking process. All players must be current members of the community center or City of Rockville residents. 

Reservations for Basketball Hoops. Reservations for basketball hoops are for 1 or 2 people. You must name each person participating during the reservation booking process. All players must be current members of the community center or City of Rockville Residents. 

Non-Member/Non-Rockville Resident. If you are not a current community center member or City of Rockville resident, your reservation request will not be fulfilled.

Reservation Cancellations. We kindly ask that you cancel your reservation online at least 12 hours in advance to allow cancelled time slots to open to other customers for booking.

Reservation is only for the person or people named on the request.
